Description

Up until a few years ago, there was a simple pathway from school to work. You graduated, found a job, and never really needed to look back. For better or worse, life is no longer that simple. The “future of work” is already here, and front-loading your education is not enough to launch a career, let alone sustain it over decades. Leaders must foster a culture of learning in their organizations and teams to support their employees to upskill and stay agile in the face of change.

This course is based on my book, The Upskilling Imperative, in which I talk about how L&D leaders can create a culture of learning in their organizations. In this course, I focus specifically on what managers can do to create a culture of learning on their teams, even in a virtual work environment. We’ll discuss:

  • How a culture of learning requires change agility and prepares you for change
  • How you can leverage your culture of learning to manage through change and uncertainty
  • 5 ways to make learning core to the way you work
  • How to make a business case for learning
  • How you can grow your learning culture

Throughout the course I’ve included lots of exercises, tip sheets, and job aids you can use to foster a culture of learning on your team. The ability to learn and develop new skills over time is the essential skill of the 21st century, and our organizations’ cultures play a huge role in teaching that skill to employees and enabling and empowering them to learn. The need for agility and upskilling has never been more imperative than it is today, so I hope you will join me in this course.
